1981 Topps – Sammy Sosa
This card is a little rough, but then agan so was the end of Sammy’s career. Sammy was the king of Chicago before the 2004 season rolled around. A corked bat and an early flight out of town sent him out of town on a sour note. It really is too bad so see how the fans turned on him. This picture of Sammy was taken in 2007 when his Rangers were in town to play the White Sox. It was one of two attempts he made to regain his former form. He had a decent 2007, but would not play baseball again. It will be interesting to see how the Hall of Fame voters treat him.
The 1981 card was a little tougher than I thought it would be. I will have to try this again with my new software. Rather than scrap the card completely though I thought that I would post it. The Sox cards from the 1981 Topps set will be much better.
